A Remarkable Personal Discovery 37 Years Later

I have been going through a lot of photos lately, actually thousands from the 1980s. When I shot Tod Swank in January of 1987 beneath Interstate 5 and on Via de la Valle in Del Mar, I exposed two rolls of Tri-X and have been looking at the proof sheets off and on since they were developed back then. Just the other day was when I first realized that I had not only taken the iconic Push photo that afternoon, but I had also shot Tod in the morning and in different clothes, hat and shoes. I am not sure how I could've forgotten all of this? Take notice of the shadows cast in opposite directions, the Push in the afternoon and the the nose wheelie in the morning. This evidence has not refreshed my memory, it's rather confusing that I have no memory of it at all.
